This started as a desperate attempt to find something comfortable enough to survive the heat of Metrocon. However, we ended up not going that year. It was revived later when I found out just how warm Otakon was. Deciding the be comfortable instead of overheating, I brought it with me, and don't regret it! Haro and my giant manbag (season one first opening) helped, but enough people recognized me, so I was happy!
